Any Other City

Life Without Buildings

2001 · pop rock

The Spotify algorithm added a different track from Any Other City by Life Without Buildings on every “Discover Weekly” playlist of mine for a month straight so I decided to give the whole record a listen and it was as if I have heard it a bunch of times already.

Nightclubbing

Grace Jones

1981 · art pop

The main goal of the listening journal was from the beginning to expose myself to new music and while I knew of Grace Jones and her transition from model to recording artist, I never actually listened to her music.

Yves Tumor

2023 · neo-psych

When I first listened to Yves Tumor’s Gospel For a New Century I was fascinated. And then the album turned out to be a beautiful, emotional and passionate record that showcased many influences and an aesthetic craftsmanship in blending them all together in a way that felt completely the artist’s.
